Abstract

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) poses a challenge to health services both in developed and developing countries, with a significant increase in incidence and prevalence that is related to the currently increased prevalence of obesity.

As a matter of fact, NAFLD is a cardiovascular risk factor.
